Qatar is a nation with a population of over 2 million people. The country has established an excellent reputation for its education system, which is considered to be among the best in the world. Qatar schools are highly regarded and respected by parents and educators alike. In this article we will take an in-depth look at how British schools compare to Qatari schools, as well as what some of their similarities and differences are!
British Schools in Qatar – British schools in Qatar range from primary to sixth form and they follow the UK national curriculum, preparing pupils for IGCSEs and A levels.
If you’re interested in teaching in Qatar, you will find there is a lot of similarities between schools in Qatar and the UK. There are a number of British schools in Qatar, which follow the UK national curriculum. These include primary and secondary schools as well as sixth form colleges.
The main similarity with these types of education systems is that all the subjects taught at Qatari British Schools are taught in English; therefore, students have an advantage when it comes to learning other languages such as Arabic, French or Chinese.
In addition to this academic experience, there are many sporting opportunities available for children at these schools through sports teams and clubs which can help them develop their social skills.
The main difference between the UK education system and the Qatar education system is that in Qatar, the curriculum is based on the Qatari national curriculum. This means that whilst students will still learn basic academic subjects such as maths, science and English at British schools in Qatar, they will also be taught Arabic and Islamic studies.
The main advantage of studying at a British school in Qatar is that students will have an opportunity to learn both English and Arabic. This means that they have the chance to develop their language skills in addition to their academic knowledge.
The structure of the day will also be similar. The day will start early, and usually much earlier than the UK does because of the afternoon heat. School does finish earlier so the amount of time you spend at school would be the same as in the UK. There will be the usual 5-6 period day depending on the length of lessons.
The overall outcome for students would be to achieve their GCSEs or A-Levels. Instead of the usual GCSE’s and A-Levels, the students will sit the IGCSE and International A-Level. There is debate over whether these are easier or harder than the UK style of assessment and this is something we will look into in the future.
Qatari Schools in Qatar – These are generally schools based on an Arabic curriculum, with subjects taught in Arabic or sometimes English.

There are also some international schools that offer a bilingual curriculum and others that offer an IB (International Baccalaureate) curriculum. Some private schools even offer trilingualism (Arabic, English and French).
Private Schools in Qatar – Private schools may be sponsored by either a national or international company or individuals, but they operate independently of the state’s educational system.
Private schools in Qatar are not funded by the government, but instead operate independently of the state’s educational system. Private schools may be sponsored by either a national or international company or individuals, but they operate independently of the state’s educational system. Private schools also do not follow Qatar’s national curriculum, and are not required to follow it.
However, most private schools follow an international curriculum that is similar to what you would find in other parts of the world such as the UK, America or Australia. Therefore many international students who attend private school will feel at home in their classes due to similarities with what they would have learnt back home.
In general, private schools focus more on their national culture than state schools do.
In general, private schools focus more on their national culture than state schools do. This is because private schools can be more flexible and adapt their curriculum to individual student needs. They also tend to offer a more personalised approach to education, in which teachers are able to get to know each student well and cater for their strengths and weaknesses accordingly.
In addition to this, private schools also have a wider range of subjects and extracurricular activities available for students than state schools do; these include art, music, drama and dance classes as well as sports clubs such as football or cricket.
Private schools can also be more likely than state ones in Qatar to have school uniforms – though this isn’t necessarily true everywhere – while they are certainly more likely than public institutions
